Description 

The Rincons form the eastern boundary of the Tucson metro area, with part of the range falling in Saguaro National Park (East). In spite of it's proximity to Tucson, everything here is very backcountry.


Getting There 

The Rincons cover a large area. Crags are accessed either via Reddington Pass to the north, or via Happy Valley to the east. See individual areas for detailed directions. Bob Kerry's "Backcountry Climbing in Southern Arizona" is the most comprehensive guide to climbing in the Rincons. Also see www.climbaz.com.

Short Story is a burly vertical to somewhat overhanging right leaning crack on Reef Rock. With I believe 3 cruxes. One close to the bottom, in in the middle (somewhat overhanging part), and at top of crack. The crack it self is approx 75ft. Then a very thin face...which I did not do.(taller ppl may not have issue) I went to the left on a tricky exciting traverse. Find the gully straight above end face another 20 or so to good tree in shade to belay from. Can also set up TR from there via ramp ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
